This tour was well conducted, planned and documented, it quickly toured a number sites in one full day. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave lots of anecdotal information from her parents who directly endured the occupation and subsequently D-Day. There were a number of maps, charts and photos used to thoroughly explain all of the visits and surrounding events. The Normandy area is covered with D-Day sites and they cannot all be covered in one day. This was a best compromise to get a feeling for the battlefield and what went on during the first few days of the allied invasion on D-Day. A trip to Omaha beach effectively showed what the Soldiers were up against once they got on to the beach and off of it into the hedgerows and small fields inland from the beach. Other sites included Sword beach British, the Pegasus Bridge where British glider troops assaulted and held two critical bridges, Merville Artillery Battery which very effectively showed life in a German gun position and a British military cemetery as well as the American cemetery at overlooking Omaha beach. I would recommend this trip for first time visitors to the area or those who have not done extensive reading on the events surrounding D-Day.

Fantastic trip. Our tour guide was excellent and really brought alive the story of the D-Day beaches. Although it is quite a long day, we would certainly recommend this trip to other travellers.

The tour was brilliant, made more so by the young french lady guide who really knew her D Day history and who made the day extremely interesting, GREAT !

Although we had reserved a tour of Omaha, Sword and the British Airborne, luckily we were the only ones on the scheduled afternoon tour, so we could change the itinerary to include St. Mere Eglise and other WWII sites in the area. I couldn't find a totally American tour on the net, but this change gave us exactly what we wanted.

"Like drinking from a fire hose" was how one of the other members of the tour described our guide. He was passionate about his job and he did it well.

We booked a full day tour of Normandy. However, since our regular guide just returned at midnight the night before from a private tour of Paris, we ended up having another guide in the morning and she returned us back to our hotel by noon; then we had to meet the regular guide at another location at 1:15pm. We ended up heading out towards Normandy twice in that same day. It certainly would have been better to have stayed out in Normandy once we rode there the first time.
